How Our Design Process Works

Our furniture design process advocates for an easy and enjoyable experience for you every step of the way. With multiple high-quality brands, styles, and fabrics to choose from, you can be sure you are getting a one-of-a-kind experience when you work with our design experts.

Chat With Our Experts

The first step of our design process is a one-on-one, complimentary, in-home design consultation. During the consultation, one of our design experts will discuss the plans you have for your space. This look into your goals will help us create pieces that complement whatever room(s) you are looking to furnish. When custom designing furniture, there are many options to choose from; we understand that it can be overwhelming. Our design experts can help suggest styles and designs for your space if you prefer.

Choose Your Style

There are many interior design styles to choose from, so having a concept in mind helps decide what kind of style you want your space to have. Knowing your style is essential to ensure your custom-designed furniture complements that vision. Here are a couple of popular styles that our clients love:

  • Traditional: Elegant, inviting, and comfortable; featuring warm, rich colors, symmetry, antique elements, and classical art.
  • Transitional: Blends traditional and contemporary styles, featuring a neutral color palette and classic styles with a less ornate theme.
  • Contemporary: Refers to current popular design trends, changing with the seasons and culture. Perfect for those who want a truly unique home that stands out from other styles.
  • Modern: Clean, geometric, and neutral. Features sharp angles with light neutral colors and is overall more toned down than other styles.

Discuss Design Shape and Size

After discussing what styles you prefer, our design experts will work with you to discuss potential layouts for your space based on the shape and size of the room and what other furniture and decor you already have that you would like to incorporate into the area. This part of the process will depend heavily on what furniture pieces you want to design and what layouts you prefer. For example, we might discuss options such as designing a sectional vs. a smaller couch with an accent chair. As with all aspects of the design process, this part will be 100% dependent on your needs and the space you have available.

Select Your Fabrics and Materials

After discussing styles and what pieces you would like in your space, our experts will help you select your custom-designed furniture’s fabric and material colors, textures, patterns, etc. We offer six unique furniture brands and have an extensive catalog of selections to browse through to help you visualize how each option will look in your space.
